This morning a work colleague gave me her mother's old knitting books. Amoung them is a book from England called "Stitchcraft", no date. I came across the pattern to sew a "Apron-cum [sic]-Knitting-Bag. At first I thought it was pretty funny but then I had another look. Actually, it is a very practical idea for smallish projects. It reminds me of the wool holders: wrist and waist holders, as well as the knitting bags distributed by the Red Cross for knitting socks for the military. With these, the project can be carried around, put down when necessary and then picked back up again.
Yup, I just might make one of these (butched-up, of course!). No, I'm not planning to wear it out but around the house it might just fit the need.
